CORI/KidSafe Mandatory Process

Potential coaches need to do these 3 things...
1. Register as a coach with HYS
2. Send the Registrar Michele Diloreto a copy of your driver's license (for the CORI file)
3. Complete the CORI form at MA Youth Soccer's website.
HYS will be notified of your clearance and Mass Youth will contact you ONLY if there is an issue.

HYS Resource Library

Holden Youth Soccer's new and growing library of Books, Pamphlets, and Videos is being put together with the idea of helping the Parent/Coach become more familiar with "The Game" and how to teach it to kids. The Library contains information for the Beginning Coach and the Advancing Coach, the U6 Coach and the U18 Coach, the Girls Coach and the Boys Coach.

New books and videos are being added on a regular basis. Our Director of Coaching and Coach Education Director will assist you in putting together the appropriate resources. Resource loans are limited to a two-week period so that as many volunteers as possible can take advantage of their benefits.

For more information, or to Borrow Library Items, please feel free to email our Director of Special Projects, Howie Blatt.
